Hi John,

In years of using OO/LO (now @, I have never been interested
in the Gallery of multimedia objects. Now I have an application for
it, and can't see how to execute a simple inclusion of a graphic
without its attached descriptive text.

Do you mean the text, which is included in shapes of theme "Flow chart"?
Insert the object and mark it. Then press key F2 to enter edit mode. Now
you can delete the text with backspace key. Some of the objects in the
"Flow chart" gallery theme are groups. In that case you first need to
enter the group (see item in context menu) and then you can select the
object, which actually has the text.

If you do not mean the above, please describe in more detail, what you
mean with "attached descriptive text".

Kind regards,

Hi Regina,

I think the two PNG graphics in the Writer Gallery John is referring to
are left and right curly braces. Both have the word "Callout" ("attached
descriptive text") drawn within the bitmap image, not editable text.

The F2 text addition facility you describe works for the Draw Gallery,
but not for the Writer Gallery and in both cases the word "Callout" in
the PNG graphic cannot be directly edited from within LO.

If I have understood John's original request correctly, "Insert -> Shape
-> Symbol Shapes" -> "Left Brace" or "Right Brace", then anchor,
position and size should satisfy his requirements.

Kind Regards
